          Finally came to a decision on the rebuild spec for the engine (much to Johns frustration I dare say)

          I managed to get a head, brand new, from Markus which had the seats cut for 38.5mm inlets, 32.5mm exhausts and '92 spec DTM ports @29.5mm. So this kind of made the decision for me and I went for S38 b38 valves, which should drop straight in.

          The full spec...

          All Sport Evo plus...
          '91 DTM head
          S38 b38 valves 38.5inlet/32.5exhaust (sodium filled)
          292/284 Schrick cams
          Arrow Shim Under followers
          New Springs/Retainers
          GpA Endurance replica Pistons 12.3:1 compression
          Arrow Rods
          Carbon Airbox Long Runner
          Motec M800

          Some parts coming from the dealer tomorrow and more to follow later.

          In the meantime some engine parts pics (because I know people like that sort of thing



























          Oh and the gearbox got a lick of paint...Hammerite as it happens Uwe!


          More part porn as it arrives.

            Suppose I better give an update...

            I have been pottering away on the engine build and it is now just about done. Only the engine ancills to sort out.

            All new timing chain parts



            All Bottom end done, rod bolts tightened by use of stretch gauge which I borrowed of a friend. Fiddly job!



            Some random shots...



            Head on





            Timing chain cover on



            I have fitted Arrow shim under followers, which is nice for getting the valve clearances spot on as you are grinding individual shims to the exact size, without having to choose between 2 shims 0.05mm apart. Takes bloody ages on the surface grinder mind. About 4 hours to do 16 shims.

            Some more shots of timing the cams.





            Schrick 292 inlet was timed to 103deg, 284exhaust 106deg. That was as close as I could get it using the offset dowels supplied with the MS cam pulleys.

            More pics to follow.

                Engine is almost done now and ready to drop in, although I'm waiting for a few parts-the main one being the exhaust manifold from Zicotec where it is being coated in their Sterling Siver from the performance colours range. These colours have the same properties as their Performance white, but with the option of a colour of choice.

                A few Pics...



                One of the things I am waiting for is the adapter for the crank trigger wheel. This will fit behind the damper hub and have 8 teeth.

                The cam sensor is fitted, but will need to check alignment with the TDC tooth when the EMS is fitted and may be adjust it.

                The EMS will be Motec M800 running Denso Coil on Plug from a Honda K series (Civic type R) and sequential injection. This will also be integrated in to the existing C101 connector. This way I can use the ECU to log oil temp/pressure and use outputs from the ECU to put out the oil light, feed the oil temp gauge, operate the Canister purge ect. Injector wise, I'm still looking, but Bosch EV14 0280158117. These are high impedance, have a split spray pattern and flow 500cc/m, but have very linear response down to very low pulse width so will be fine for idle. People are using 725 and 1000cc/min versions of these on 2.0lt Mitsubishi Evos with no idle issues.



                I stripped an old harness out so to keep the power distribution, C101 and diagnostic connector.



                I have also fitted a knock sensor as I hope to use a Motec SKM for knock control in the future.





                Plenty still to do!

                      How do I keep missing these sweet threads! Looking absolutely superb mate! I can't believe how well your aluminum parts came out. Really impressive Steve. I'll have to see if anybody local to me does that kind of cleaning.

                      The mystery part part... I keep thinking I've seen it but when I look back I'm sure I haven't. It does kinda look like a mountain bike replaceable brake boss. Old style, not for discs. I have them on a set of old AMP forks sitting in the closet. But as far as something for the M3? I haven't the foggiest. :ha:

                      Looking great bud.

                        Thanks Jake.

                        The mystery part is a stock brake bias valve delete! 316ss with M10x1 thread either end, 4mm drilling right through, and a shoulder with a 19mm flat for the spanner.

                        I have an AP adjustable valve in now, mounted by the ABS pump.

                          Finally, the exhaust manifold has now arrived back from Zircotec. Coated in Sterling Silver from their Performance colours range, which has the same properties as the performance white.

                          Pics, of course...





                          This has delayed me a little. I will have the engine on Monday and then I will have to pull my finger out!

                              I don't understand how you can ever drive the car on the road again after this!
                              Every stone chip would drive me mad! As much as I would like to build something up from the ground like you, as much I dislike the idea.
                              I think what has changed my mind was my time racing bikes. Spend all winter preparing the bike, only the finest on materials. Attention to detail beyond believe.
                              And then throw it into the gravel trap at the first race meeting...... [peace]


                              Goodbye M3, you served me well.
